2017 State of Hardware Report

I'm excited to share the 2017 State of Hardware Report with you, packed with 20 pages of information from surveying over 340 engineers and designers, and created to help you deepen your understanding of your field, career, and industry.

Key insights in this year's report include:

  • Income is significantly influenced by age, location, level of education, as well as field.
  • Engineers & designers have eclectic taste when it comes to the products they purchase.
  • The criteria engineers & designers use to evaluate job opportunities shifts in telling ways with age.
  • Engineers & designers really don't like conferences, or there aren't any useful ones available—over 66% of respondents didn't attend any useful conferences in 2016.
